Julian Treasure is author of the books Sound Business and How To Be Heard. He is a highly-rated international public speaker on the effective use of sound in business and on personal communication skills – particularly conscious listening and powerful speaking. His five TED talks have been viewed over 50 million times, and his latest is in the top 10 TED talks of all time.
Julian’s company, The Sound Agency, works with major brands worldwide proving that good sound is good business and pioneering the use of generative soundscapes instead of mindless music in spaces like airports, shopping malls and offices.
“Julian’s keynote within our annual Panasonic Convention, which we organise for more than 1,500 editors and dealers, was very well received by all guests who attended his presentation. For me, his presentation was not only an inspiration business-wise, but it was also a good mixture of information – conveyed in a lively way – and provided great learnings for everyday life. His subject of sound is universal and relevant for everyone, and I would recommend him as keynote speaker for other opportunities within Panasonic and externally.” – Panasonic
“Awesome… At the risk of over-using the word yet again, I can’t think of a more appropriate use of it when applied to you! Your presentation was so insightful, truly brilliant, inspiring and full of heart.”- The Designory
“Clearly an expert on his subject, Julian Treasure ran a very engaging and informative workshop for the MDRT Annual Meeting in Philadelphia. Putting aside his prowess as a speaker – which is clear – his high standards and professionalism make him extremely easy to deal with when planning an event.” – MDRT
“To quote one of the attendees, your presentation was “outstanding!”” – Phonak
